The official website of the live-action film adaptation of Rin Mikimoto's shōjo manga series Kyō no Kira-kun (Today's Kira-kun) began streaming a teaser trailer for the film last Friday. The video previews the film's story and shows a scene of Kira kissing Nino behind a curtain.

Taishi Nakagawa (left in picture right) and Marie Iitoyo (right) will star as Kira and Nino, respectively. Nakagawa starred as Kiyoshi in the live-action Prison School television series, and will play Ryōta Watari in the upcoming Your Lie in April live-action film. Iitoyo played Tsuruko in the live-action anohana: The Flower We Saw That Day special and Kira Asō in the live-action Mars television series and film.

The film opens in Japan on February 25. Taisuke Kawamura (live-action Kuragehime) will direct the film.

The story follows an eccentric girl named Nino who keeps a parrot on her shoulder and a carouser named Kira who passes his days with nonsense. Nino and Kira's houses are next to each other but they have never spoken, until one day Nino finds out Kira's secret and their fates intertwine.

Mikimoto launched the series in Bessatsu Friend in 2011, and ended the series in August 2014. Kodansha published the manga's ninth and final compiled volume in October 2014.

Mikimoto's shōjo manga series Kin Kyori Renai received a live-action film adaptation in October 2014.
